Thank you for your interest in being a guest on Community Signal and for taking the time to read this.
Why the Questionnaire?
If you were sent this form, I probably already have an idea as to what we can discuss on the show. With that mind, this form is used to gather key information about you that we’ll use to promote the show, if we have one.
Community Signal is a fiercely independent program. As an example, our sponsors have no idea what is coming next! We don’t allow them to know. We serve our audience first. It’s important that you know:
- Whatever you enter into this questionnaire could be shared on the show. Please do not put any conditions on the information.
- Guests do not have control over what makes the show.
- I will not run show topics by you before hand or submit a list for anyone’s approval.
This may sound scary, but it’s not meant to be. Please share what you feel comfortable sharing. If there is something that is personally-sensitive, feel free to flag it for me.
About the Program
Community Signal is a community-focused show. There are plenty of social media and marketing podcasts out there. That’s not what this is. We try to maintain a strict community line, and so what we discuss in our conversation will satisfy that goal.
The show is hosted by me, Patrick O’Keefe. The show will be pre-recorded and edited by my producer, Karn Broad. If we have a show, we’ll block out an hour to record, and a finished show is usually between 30 and 40 minutes.
Audio ads may be read by me live during our session or inserted into the show later. If, during our conversation, I refer to “Karn,” that means I am making a note for my producer. Feel free to say hi to Karn!
If we do schedule a time, please find a quiet spot to record. Ideally, you will have a wired internet connection, instead of Wi-Fi. While we can use video to see each other, only audio will be recorded. You should wear headphones/earbuds and use the best mic you can. Karn will make us both sound as great as possible.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
